What's going on for the holiday? Who's hosting? Who's cooking? Who's just going to veg out for 3 days? :wink:

I'm acting as sous grillmaster for a friend on Saturday but then most of the weekend will be spent traveling to graduation parties for family and friends, with my next chance to grill being Monday night. It'll be nice to come to work next Tuesday so I can recover from the weekend! :wink:

After it's successful test run yesterday, I will be doing another batch of Planked Hamburgers and Steak Fries for four people on Saturday. Sunday I am tied up at this point. Monday I'm not sure about yet, but if I am free I think I'm going to do a Big Bob Gibson chicken and white sauce.

I hope everyone has a great Memorial Day and gets in a lot of quality grilling or smoking time.

Will be heading down to Lake Whitney to go camping. Some friends are coming up from Austin and bringing their boat. Many beers will be drunk, campfires and out door cooking. I better get planning on that menu.

We will be camping this weekend up north. This will be the first time I am not taking the Weber along. Everything will be done over the fire on sticks and a grate...........Wish me luck :D

Dunno how much cooking I will get in. we were told on Tuesday that to "Pack your stuff you are being relocated to Chicago" My wife has a great opportunity but they didn't give us much time.

I know I have some stuff in the freezer I want to cook so I don't lose it such as a chuck roast, shoulder and a whole chicken but I don't know if I'll be able to get to them. What's the use of just cooking it and then not being able to eat them?????

I hope everyone has a great holiday!

Good luck with the move, Eddie! Perhaps you could get a neighbor to store your freezer and its contents for a few weeks until you can make a trip back down?

Will be at my father's Monday - already established that I am to "do" the chicken. Breasts, legs, thighs on a gas grill. Need to find something to jazz them a bit.
